It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

Where have all the levelers gone?
comment 6 Written by on May 10, 2012 – 7:42 am

I’m noticing more and more how deserted it’s been leveling Ancelyn and Annata. There might be one occasional player, though it’s seemed as often to be a Horde player as not, but I’m almost always alone while I’m out in the world. Hard to find even anyone to /wave at, let alone do things with.

Combined with the much-earlier times that I’m playing (I am offline by 6:30 or 7 server time unless I do some serious planning ahead) and the general lull that is the wait before an expansion, and it’s pretty darn lonely!

My guess is that all the people who are thinking about rerolling are going to wait for Cataclysm and roll Pandas (which I’m also planning to do), and all the people interested in seeing the new Cataclysm content are well and thoroughly past Ferelas and Shimmering Flats.

Still, it’s a little unnerving to see all the people hanging around in Stormwind only to find literally NOBODY out in the world.

  1. I’s finding what me team is now far more skewed ta the high end than ever before. More than half be in Cata content, an’ most of thems is at 85. An’ a lotta the lower leveling fer thems what ain’t is happenin’ in dungeons, so they ain’t out in the world neithers.

  2. I would also postulate that people are feeling less inclined to level alts at the moment because Diablo is coming out on the 15th. My impression is that most alts are created and leveled as a means of having something to do in-between raids and other end-game content. I know that I have little motivation to play on an alt at the moment knowing that there is very little chance of that alt advancing once I beging to use my disrectionary game time outside of raids on a differnt game.

  3. I started a disc priest on a high population server just to look at the economy and decided to at least get her to 15 to run some instances. I am currently in the outlands and when I que as a healer, I have been getting groups in under a minute time after time. Lots of people everywhere and tons of groups as all levels.

  4. >>elvenmoon: maybe that’s the difference then – they’re all in LFD. I’m suspicious of LFD groups after a few flops, so I’ve been out in the wild doing quests.

  5. >>Gunner: I’m looking forward to D3 too, so you may have a point there. Though there have been other games all along, the combo of an expansion end with the influx of new titles recently is probably keeping people away. I know I’ll probably spend a good bit of time in Diablo next week too!

  6. Pandas are not the only reason to wait until Mists. There are so many changes coming to the class basics, talents, and in some cases even professions (Inscription) that for me it was a very big reason to wait with my new (non-panda)alt.

    Many people are working on alts, just not newbie alts. Plenty of L83-85 on my server in Deepholme this week. Not enough to have a lively zone-chat, but enough to wait a few minutes and grab a drink so you don’t get in each other’s way. Most people on my server/playtimes are not interested in grouping up unless it’s for killing the elite that just stomped all over them when they tried to kill it solo. 🙁

    It might also be because there are more people in Eastern Kingdoms. A lot of Horde players on my server like the Eastern Kingdoms quests more than the new Kalimdor quests because the Horde is more aggressive & clearly winning over there.
